He began his career at senior level at local club Spårvägen before signing for AIK in 2002.
Örlund made his debut in AIK in a Svenska Cupen game against Carlstad United in 2003. AIK won with 4-1, and Örlund kept the goalkeeper position in the next cup round against Häcken as well. During the 2004 season he was on loan to FC Café Opera United where he made an impressive impact (25 games with seven clean sheets). At his return to AIK in 2005, while playing in Superettan, Örlund played all but one game and made himself a streak, when he did not let in a goal for 567 minutes. Since his return to AIK he has been the undisputed first choice. On 27 November 2009 he signed for Rosenborg BK.
